The Winnipeg Humane Society is helping those on low or fixed incomes have their cat spayed or neutered at a discount all next month.

Fix ‘Em February offers 500 spots on a first-come, first-served basis for individuals to make a dent in cat overpopulation.

“Cat licensing and spay and neuter surgeries create solutions to combat cat overpopulation,” said WHS CEO Javier Schwersensky.

“It’s crucial to offer spay and neuter surgeries at an extremely low cost to those who can’t afford it.”

The program is a joint initiative with Winnipeg’s Animal Services Agency. Subsidized spay and neuter surgeries normally run $25 at the WHS outside of the promotion.

Cat owners can book a time by visiting WinnipegHumaneSociety.ca, by calling (204) 888-7627 or stopping by the WHS Clinic at 45 Hurst Way.
